"Who would think that Kelly Taylor would become an addict? On this very intense season, we're introduced to Colin , who brings coke to her life. Also we have that annoying Susan, who dates Brandon and ultimately breaks his heart and Dylan getting married to Toni (while furious and revengeful on Marchette), and later leaving the famous zip code (but not for good, he returns some seasons later). We have that hateful Kelly-stalker Tara, the charming prince Carl (who hits on Clare), special appearances of Cindy Walsh and Andrea Zuckerman, a very sutle reference to Brenda on Scotland (at the end of the season), Ray Pruitt hurting Donna, Valerie's hateful and blackmailing friend, Ginger, David's mom trying to kill herself, and we almost lose Casa Walsh for good! (the show wouldn't be the same without that house!!)
This season is extraordinary; the whole series is superb. But the DVDs...I know, I know, everybody already complained about the music changes and the missing scenes (the ones with pop references, especially) But it's a shame that fans worldwide (and I'm writing this from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where the show was called "Barrados no Baile" and was also a huge phenomenon) can't have on their shelves the complete and uncut seasons of such a great show. The same thing happened to "Fastlane", Will & Grace" and (in a small way) to "Charmed", among others. Some fans expected that the "complete series pack" of "Fastlane" or "Will & Grace" (to be released soon) would present the uncut episodes with ALL the original music; and I know that some fans also expect the same thing when all ten seasons of Beverly Hills 90210 are finally released, but I think it is most unlikely something like this will happen, that the studio will fix something on this matter.
Anyway, we, fans, HAVE to buy the seasons just this way, and we have to be happy and thankful that, at least, the Beverly Hills 90210 gang is on DVD.....What can we do NOW about it? In fact, what could we do in the first place?

"You went through a GRAM?!" (Spoilers)

"Although I remain a huge fan of the high school years, I think there's something to be said about the entertainment value of Kelly Taylor snorting coke through Bill Taylor's check. Watching her downward spiral through season six makes up for any of the weaker plot lines. My favorite part is when Colin screams at Kelly, "You went through a gram?!" God, this is the best show ever.
Other highlights of this season include the pairing of Val and David. Donna finally ditches "cheater and beater" Ray "one T was all my momma could afford" Pruit, for the much more intelligent, CU quarterback, Joe Bradley. One of the more painful scenes in the season involves Joe purchasing a bird for Donna which was trained to repeat "Joe loves Donna." This was, of course, not successful. If you manage to watch it without gouging out your eyes, you will be rewarded with Kelly's bout with coke.
Nat gets a shot at romance here. It's slightly awkward, yes, but whatever. Brandon dates Susan Keats, editor of the campus paper. I like them together. They also get stuck on a mountain top at one point. Donna gets to ride on a float on the Rose Parade, which is totally exciting. Dylan gets hitched, his wife dies, and he leaves the show. He miss him.
Did I mention that Kelly becomes a coke addict and almost gets killed by her psychopathic roommate whom she met in rehab?"

"Would we rather have 90210 dvds with errors and missing information or no dvds at all?
I guess the former.
But it's incredibly disappointing to see images manipulated and photoshopped (just look at the cover art for the pilot dvd...douglas emerson's head is on luke perry's body! plus, why isn't clare on the covers for seasons where she was a regular?!) and factual errors in the episode descriptions.
The special features for the first four seasons were great, but there weren't ANY on season 5 and I don't think there is on 6.
Wish they were releasing the series wholeheartedly. Maybe better luck if the complete series is released in one package?"
First 10 episodes are awesome, after that it becomes a diffe

"Losing Brenda (Sexy Shannen Doherty) at the end of Season 4 was bad enough, but not trivial, after all, Tiffany Amber Theissen was just as nice to look at, then Andrea (Gabrielle Carteris) & Jim & Cindy Walsh (James Eckhouse/Carol Potter) left at the end of Season 5, now with this Season 6, Dylan (Luke Perry) departs, really liked this one because it spoke to my generation, (same age as Doherty & Preistley is one year older than me) as today's teen shows speak to today's teens, In this season Dylan finds the man responsible for his father's death & begins dating his daughter (Rebecca Gayheart) to get close to him, & in the process begins to fall for her as she does for him, thus complicating things, Steve & Brandon turn Brandon's parent's house into party central, while Kelly deals with a drug addiction, & Donna tries to rid herself of the very controlling Ray, while Valerie keeps manipulating everyone to her advantage, but the real highlight is Dylan's obsession with bringing down his father's killer, which has disasterous consequences for all involved as his father's killer makes a fatal error in judgement against Dylan, won't spoil it here, but this show seemed to lose its magic after Perry's departure, but I say get this one, just to see justice done Dylan McKay style, afterwards, the show is basically everyone dealing with relationships, Jason Preistly & Emma Caulfield(Susan) had great chemistry, this was a good pairing no doubt & Valarie (Theissan) & David(Brian Austin Green) have good chemistry as well who at the time was a real-life couple, all in all a good season, but the old favorites are missed!"
I love it

"This is my second favorite season. There is a lot of good drama and I love that there are so many episodes. I recommend it for any Beverly Hills 90210 fan. I felt it picked right up where the 5th season left off. If you were left hanging from the previous season(s), don't hesistate to get this one!
I hope they come out with the remaining seasons soon!"
